Minnesota March for Life 2018
Every year on January 22nd pro-life Minnesotans mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision at the State Capital in St.Paul.
Prior to the rally at the capital the Catholic Archdiocese of St.Paul & Minneapolis held it’s Annual Prayer Service for Life at the Cathedral of St. Paul that was attended by nearly a thousand faithful from many Christian backgrounds (our group representing for Orthodox churches all across the Twin Cities & Minnesota).
Despite a blizzard warning and 10+ inches of snowfall nearly one thousand of us Minnesotans marched to the State Capital to stand for the sanctity of human life and remember the nearly 60 million human lives lost to abortion (and the countless number of lives affected as a result.
One of my favorite memories from today was singing together the “A New Commandment” hymn as we marched to the capital.
“A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34
Please pray that the number of Orthodox faithful in Minnesota able to attend this march for life will continue to grow in the years to come.
